Little Toot has heard tell of the fire-breathing monsters called steamboats but when he makes the journey to find them, he's disappointed. They haven't been on the Mississippi for years. When the great river goes into flood however, Toot stumbles deep into the bayou and finds the relics mouldering away. He'll need their help if he's going to save all the hapless animals from the rising floodwaters. To support the story of Little Toot, readers are treated to well-rendered visuals--especially memorable for one picture of Toot riding on the river high above a town protected by a concrete levee. A combination of bright color and black and white illustrations enliven this classic tale of an intrepid little tug on a great adventure.
